What our customers are saying

  • I’ve been using Murray Hire Centres LTD for years now.
    As a landscaper in Bristol, we can only foresee what’s above ground and our projects can change anytime.
    At anytime, I can call them asking for any piece of equipment and it’s usually delivered within 1.5 hours, mostly within an hour.
    As a tradesman , this is invaluable but anything I need domestic, they are a one stop shop.

    Here are some reasons I keep coming back, every time:

    Service is completely customer oriented, nothing is too much trouble - ever.
    No matter my location, it’s always prompt delivery,
    Great value for money,
    100% reliable, very well maintained and serviced equipment,
    Expert advice on all equipment over the phone if needed (either recommending the right equipment to hire or technical advice on hired equipment,
    They have an extensive range of safety gear, forestry tools and general tools which can be delivered with the hire gear. For example, if we have a 12hp rotovator delivered, I can ask to buy 2 landscaping rakes, work boots, a set of spanner’s, gloves and some chainsaw oil and it’s included in the hire delivery. This is so valuable to me who needs to be onsite,
    All prices are extremely transparent and their catalog offers their full range (phone for one to be sent out to you),
    They have wonderful working culture, it’s obvious they are all one unit, from maintenance to accountants,
    It’s a family run business and it shows, very conveniently located covering a huge area, The delivery drivers are knowledgeable with all equipment and offer detailed explanations on how to safely start, run and shut down all gear.
    The first time I went to the shop, I introduced myself, two months went by and when I returned, they all remembered my name.

    To offer some context, I used another hire company this summer when all their diggers were already in hire (first time it’s ever happened but it was unexpected and needed one asap) when we came across unexpected garage foundations under the topsoil.
    I used another hire company and I was shocked at the difference in service. This other company were a well known national company and although it was only sub standard service, it was a huge difference between what I have been experiencing over the years with Murray.

    Hired a Cherry picker from Murray Hire to complete work on my chimney stack. I have to say, customer service was exceptional from start to finish. I received a call on the morning the picker was due to be delivered regarding a weather warning that day, explaining that they would be be happy to bring it out another day without penalty if I hadn't finished work because of the conditions. Friendly and a very positive experience throughout. Thank you and a massive thumbs up from me!

    Gary Horner

    10/10 couldn't ask for a more friendly bunch of guys, always incredibly helpful and supportive. I'm a DIY novice and have rented a few bits of kit of these guys in that past, they've always taken the time to make sure I'm comfortable with the kit. Most recently I popped in for a repair on my #stihl kombi, they were fantastic, fixed my issue quickly and without charge (despite the fact I hadn't bought my unit from them). We are lucky to have establishments like this on our doorstep in Yate! Give them a try

    Julian was a huge help getting not one, but then another piece of equipment to site in the same day both within hours of calling! Thank you again & we will be in touch whenever we need any further equipment. Your ‘can do’ attitude & ability to react so quickly was amazing.

  • I've not visited recently, but always found everyone polite and very helpful.
    And in these trying times I'm aware Murrays have treated their staff better than the multinational company I work for.
    And that is why staff are happy and always helpful.

    Really helpful and friendly - would definitely recommend!

    Exemplary service from Murray Hire again. They got me out of a very sticky situation today delivering an excavator at very short notice. They supply well maintained equipment that gets replaced earlier than other hire centres. Friendly knowledgeable staff.
